Holidays are for spoiling yourself. After months of hard work and saving madly it’s time to chill out on a beautiful tropical island, and indulge your body and mind with some luxurious pampering. Lots of people travel here to get married or for a Phuket honeymoon and want to feel and look their best whilst on holiday.
Apart from a Phuket cruise, there is nothing more exciting when travelling than stumbling across a used bookshop of paperbacks filled with interesting titles. In the past there were quite a few second-hand shops around the island, but sadly they closed for various reasons, including the rise of kindles and other e-readers.
Phuket is the main holiday destination in Thailand. There are plenty of people who come here to get a tan, get drunk, or pick up a bar girl. However, there is a whole lot more to the island than that, its culture and traditions are fun to explore and the food is so tasty you’ll return again and again just to eat.
Thailand is a hot country, one of the main reasons tourists choose to holiday here. Phuket is the most popular island in the country, mainly for its brilliant sunshine and gorgeous beaches.
Even when it’s raining the Phuket weather is still hot. Our monsoon season generally starts around May and goes right through to October. Although it doesn’t rain every single day it can be wet and damp, but it’s never very cold here. If you do visit during these months it might not be possible to swim or sunbathe because of the weather. We’ve made a list of things to do, all suitable for a rainy day.
It’s often claimed that Thai is a difficult language to learn, and there are plenty of people who use this as an excuse to not even try. After more than a decade living here, and organising Phuket boat tours on this beautiful island, we like to claim we can speak Thai. Perhaps not very well, but we can get by. It’s fun to be able to speak to the local people and they always appreciate the effort.
Why not break away from tradition and have a Phuket honeymoon or wedding day on a beautiful tropical island? These days, more and more couples choose to do this due to lower air fares, affordable accomodation and people’s growing sense of adventure.
